Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing, misleadingly titled “Protecting Investor Interests.” In reality, it was nothing more than an attempt by MAGA Republicans to showboat for their wealthy special interest donors. In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement: 

“Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee alone have taken nearly $10 million from special interests that stand to lose if shareholders and companies continue to prioritize responsible investing, so it’s no wonder they spent hours today on the same tired talking points. The fact is most Americans want companies to pursue responsible business practices. Rather than listening to them and supporting investments in the future of our country, MAGA Republicans are choosing to side with industries like the oil and gas, tobacco, and gun manufacturers, all to keep their donors happy.”
